IMPORTANT NOTICES
Installation of overhead products requires careful planning and preparation.
Be extremely careful when working on a vehicle with side curtain air bags.
Do not route wires near any portion of the side curtain air bag assemblies.
This includes anchor points in A, B, C or D pillars of the vehicle. Routing wires
in these areas or running wires by the side curtain air bags can prevent the
side curtain air bag from fully deploying which can result in personal injury
to vehicle occupants. If you have any question regarding routing in a vehicle,
please contact Audiovox Technical support at 1-800-225-6074.
WARNINGS
• Do not use any solvents or cleaning materials when cleaning the video
monitor.
• Do not use any abrasive cleaners, they may scratch the screen.
• Use only lightly dampened lint free cloth to wipe the screen if it is dirty.
• Lock the LCD screen in fully closed position when not in use.
• Before putting on headphones, always adjust the volume setting to OFF or
lowest position.
• Remember to leave the dome light switch in the off or auto position when
the vehicle is unattended, as the dome lights, if left on, can drain the
vehicle battery.
• Do not put pressure on the screen.
• Caution children to avoid touching or scratching the screen, as it may
become dirty or damaged.
An LCD panel and/or video monitor may be installed in a motor vehicle and
visible to the driver only if the LCD panel or video monitor is used for vehicle
information, system control, rear or side observation or navigation. If the
LCD panel or video monitor is used for television reception, video or DVD
play, the LCD panel or video monitor must be installed so that these features
will only function when the vehicle is in “park” or when the vehicle’s parking
brake is applied.
Safety Precautions
When connecting power and ground in a mobile video installation, insure
that the ACC wire is fused at the point where it is connected to the vehicle’s
ACC wiring. Failure to do so can result in damage to the vehicle if a short
circuit develops between the vehicle connection point and the mobile video
product.
For safety reasons, when changing video media, it is recommended that
the vehicle is not in motion, and that you do not allow children to unfasten
seat-belts to change video media or make any adjustments to the system.
System adjustments can be accomplished using the remote control, while
seat-belts remain fastened. Enjoy your AUDIOVOX entertainment system but
remember that the safety of all passengers remains the number one priority.
An LCD panel and/or video monitor used for television reception, video or
DVD play that operates when the vehicle is in gear or when the parking
brake is not applied must be installed to the rear of the driver seat where it
will not be visible, directly or indirectly, to the operator of the motor vehicle.

Decide upon the system configuration and options that will be installed.
Review all manuals to become familiar with electrical requirements and hookups.
Decide upon the mounting locations of all components and the method of mounting.
Prep the vehicle. Remove any interior trim necessary to gain access to vehicle's wiring, as well as all areas where interconnecting wire harnesses will be
located. If any access holes need to be cut into the vehicle, do this now.
Route the wiring harnesses in the vehicle as necessary. Refer to the wiring diagrams in this manual, as well as the wiring instructions for the individual
components and accessory options being installed. Ensure that the wiring is protected from sharp edges. Ensure that all wiring is not pinched when all
components and interio trim are fully installed. Leave enough slack in the wiring at each component to allow working room.
Remove all A/V system components from their packaging and place them loosely in the vehicle at their respective locations.
Connect all components together and verify the proper operation of all system functions.
Note: This is best done BEFORE components have been permanently mounted.
After verifying proper operation of the system, proceed to mount each component.
When all components are mounted, recheck the function of the entire system. Ensure that no wiring was pinched or connected improperly during
final installation.

CONNECTING THE DOME LIGHTS
The dome lights in the video monitor require three connections to the vehicle's wiring. There are two common types of dome light circuits used, positive or
negative switched. Positive systems supply voltage to the interior lights to turn them on. Negative switched systems apply ground to illuminate the bulbs.
To determine which system you have, you must locate the wires at the dome light. On a positive switched system, with all the doors closed and lights out,
both wires at the dome light will rest at ground. When the light is activated, one of these wires will switch to +12 VDC. This is the vehicle's switching wire. On a
negative switched system, with all the doors closed and lights out, both wires at the dome light will rest at +12 VDC. When the light is activated, one of these
wires will switch to ground. This is the switching wire.
For positive systems, connect the purple/brown (Lamp auto) wire to the vehicle's switched wire. Then connect the red/black (Lamp on) wire to a fused constant
12 volt source and the black/red (Lamp common) wire to a good ground. Positive systems are commonly found on Ford vehicles.
For negative systems, connect the purple/brown (Lamp auto) wire to the vehicle's switched wire. Then connect the red/black (Lamp on) wire to a good ground
and the black/red (Lamp common) wire to fused constant 12 volt source. Negative systems are commonly found on General Motors and import vehicles.
Note: Some vehicles which incorporate transistorized control of the dome light circuit, such as the 1999 Dodge Caravan, may require that the purple/brown
(Lamp auto) wire be connected to the door pin switch wire, as the additional current draw of the Monitor's lights may not be supported by the output of
the vehicle’s body control computer..
